Happy March, friends!! Welcome, welcome to the month that will hopefully begin to bring more sunshine than ice! 😉 For the past couple of years on March 1st Christopher and I have celebrated St. David’s Day! St. David was the patron saint of Wales and tradition holds that he died on March 1st in 589 AD so the first of March is the day we celebrate in his honor.
You might be thinking, “Wait a minute! I thought you guys were Italian… this is “this Italian family” blog, right?” Well, as I mentioned on our about page, I’m not actually Italian. I married into it. Christopher is Italian, but my family heritage is from the British Isles – predominately Wales. So it’s a small way of connecting with my people. 🙂 Plus we love to celebrate! And after the first year we celebrated we discovered that we LOVE Welsh Cakes. Sometimes we make them even when it’s not St. David’s Day, haha! So any excuse to make them is good with us!
A couple of people requested more cooking videos after the Chinese New Year one and while I don’t think it’s something I’ll be able to do frequently, I was able to make a video of this process for you guys yesterday! 🙂
If you aren’t interested in the cooking part of this video, you should at least watch the last minute of the video (beginning at 4:21) to see my sister Abby and Christopher talking about how exciting they are about Welsh Cakes. And if you are just looking for the blooper… it begins at 4:58. In case you can’t hear what Christopher says at the very end, it’s “I’ll take two”. 🙂
